BlogMINDFUL LEADERSHIP AND WELLNESS
Inspiring conscious leaders to mindfully build successful wellness-oriented companies that serve, synchronize, and integrate the best interests of all stakeholders to bring about positive local, national and global impact.
Many years ago, I stole an idea from the San Francisco Bay Health Clubs. They had a suggestion box labeled “Catch Us Doing Something Right”.
This struck me as absolutely brilliant!
Rather than asking members to complain, they were asking them to see team members and others doing good things.
In today’s competitive business environment, frontline team members—those who interact directly with customers—are the cornerstone of any organization, especially those with a high customer-facing presence. However, the traditional approach to talent management often overlooks this vital group, focusing mainly on managerial and executive roles. “The Affinity Principle” reimagines this strategy, stressing the importance of creating an enriching environment for frontline team members that fosters increased retention and better performance.
In a world driven by metrics and the relentless pursuit of growth, there’s a principle often overlooked—the essence of human connection. The AFFINITY formula is not just a theory but a realization of what truly drives success in any organization is the people. It’s about acknowledging that businesses don’t operate in isolation. They are living entities, shaped by the relationships between people.
In the complex tapestry of human existence, the concept of free will holds a prominent position. Victor Frankl, a renowned psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor, and Nir Eyal, a prominent author and behavioral designer, shed light on the significance of free will in our lives. Feeling autonomous and self-determined, that we have the power to exercise free will, is a fundamental psychological need that impacts our mental health. While it is easy to feel swept along by the current of life, believing we lack control over our outcomes, we must recognize our inherent ability to direct and redirect our path. Although we cannot change past decisions, the power to shape our current decisions and determine our direction lies within our grasp.
I have been pondering on an article I recently came across in the Harvard Business Review, “Compassionate Leadership Is Necessary — but Not Sufficient,” written by Rasmus Hougaard, Jacqueline Carter, and Nick Hobson. I thought it could be of great interest to you as well.
As we navigate through turbulent times, the importance of compassionate leadership is more pronounced than ever. Yet, the authors reveal through their research that compassion on its own is not sufficient for effective leadership. Compassion must be paired with wisdom.
Even though it’s been several decades, I’ll never forget the first time I truly recognized and leveraged mindful communication. It was mid-week and the office was humming with people engrossed in their work. I was sitting in my office, going through a seemingly never ending stream of emails.
At no other point in recent history has attracting and retaining talent been as crucial to a company’s success. Labor shortages, aging populations, reduced immigration, and a long-term decline in labor force participation are creating immense pressure on employers to become an employer of choice. In this newsletter, I’ll explore the key steps to hiring well and building a company culture that nurtures, grows, and retains top talent, ensuring you stand out as an employer of choice in your industry.
As we age, our focus shifts from more immediate issues to more long-term aspects of our journey. A couple of questions we may ponder include: “What do we want to be doing in our later years?” and “What is our plan to exact that outcome?” These are the questions Dr. Peter Attia, a renowned physician focused on longevity, asks all his patients. His goal is twofold: to shift their focus towards healthspan and to challenge his patients to prioritize long-term gains over immediate gratification.
